CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) Miami Hurricanes forward Dewan Huell has pulled out of the NBA draft and will return to school for his junior season.
Huell said Saturday he made the decision after receiving feedback from NBA teams and discussing his options with his family and coaches. He declared for the draft in April but didn't retain an agent, leaving him the option of continuing his college career.
Hurricanes underclassmen Lonnie Walker IV and Bruce Brown Jr. earlier opted to turn pro and will be eligible for the draft.
The 6-foot-11 Huell averaged 11.4 points and 6.6 rebounds as a sophomore and started all 32 games.
